It’s been a whirlwind fall for Hershey defenseman and Capitals prospect Connor Hobbs. In his first AHL season, he has seen milestones such as his first professional fight and his first AHL goal. And right now, Hobbs is recovering from a left wrist fracture that will keep him out for another 4-6 weeks.
But, at the very least, the defenseman will stay warm while his wrist heals. Sunday, Hobbs tweeted a picture of a blanket that his mother had made.

Among family photos, the blanket also includes pictures of the puck from Hobbs’ first professional goal, a collection of nameplates from the dressing rooms of his former teams, a list of his accomplishments in the WHL, a teddy bear (presumably his), and a name-origin poem.
Hopefully we see Hobbs on the ice sooner rather than later, but this blanket should help him through the recovery process.
Connor Hobbs’ mom, you are the best mom.
